Nursery time...

Not too much longer and our little grandbaby will be born!

Our daughter has been busy getting her sweet nursery ready in their beautiful home...

Come along up the stairs...
 (taken after they first moved in, during our visit... you can see one of their sweet dogs by the entrance to the dining room. The kitchen is in the back and the living room is opposite that.)

Here is the "BEFORE" 
(this was a guest room).
(This is Girly~Twirly's antique iron bed that we had bought when she was little).

And here is the "AFTER"
 (The left side of the room, where the iron bed used to be).


1. Girly~Twirly and her hubby "Awesome" painted walls.
2. Girly~Twirly sewed the crib skirt.
3. Girly~Twirly lined the inside of the bookshelf.
4. Girly~Twirly painted the painting by the crib.
5. Girly~Twirly made the paper lanterns (I think they are sooo cute!)
 that Awesome hung over the crib.


The right side of the room.
I love the watercolor painting that Girly~Twirly painted above the dresser/changing table. It reminds me of a Central Park scene...and she chose the bright colors to go with the nursery.

She is still adding some finishing touches, with another great makeover that Girly~Twirly did, but I will share that in another post. And I finally finished some things I'd sewn for the nursery, so had my handsome hubby mail those to them. (I'll share those on another post too :o)  (I am trying to do shorter posts :o) If you are new to my blog...whew! most of my past posts prior to this year, have been mini novels!)

I'm joining in with Ms. Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday 's  "N"post...
& with Susan's Metamorphasis Monday
& with At the Picket Fence for Inspiration Friday
& with Shine your light's Before & After party

*****
And as usual, I'd like to share some past orders with you. These three will be in the nurseries of three little sweeties :o)

This first one was the lily image chosen by her mommy, who won the recent giveaway that was hosted by So Easy Being Green (This sweet blog mom of two beautiful little girls has lots of amazing product giveaways, so I was tickled pink to be a part of one of them) .  Thank you Monica for your interest and for entering into the giveaway.

This sweetie's nickname is "Cubby" and has bears and butterflies for her theme.


This shows it in black and white and also after the color was added. The one is color was from a photo, so the lighting may be a little dark.

This one was drawn for another little cutie bear...whose nursery has stars included.


Also shown in black and white and then after color was added. Thank you so much for thinking of this one for your little girl's room.

If you would like to look at some other baby themed art, please take a look at them in my "All about Baby Themes" album.
...and I'd love if you haven't already, please become a "fan" of my fb art page by "liking" it. :o)



Edited note added: I keep reading how google friend connect will be non-existent...so, I put on "my big girl pants" to learn something new. (I do not easily get the gist to computer/tech stuff...oh yes, I find myself all thumbs even with my hubby's smart phone!)...& so I am happy that Brent has created Linky followers!

Please be sure to follow along on my left sidebar, so that I don't lose any of you, who have been such wonderful blog buddies!

Sue said...

What a darling nursery. I can see that your daughter, like her mom, is an artist.

A very lovely room any little baby girl will grow up loving! Her crib looks much like the one my daughter bought that will grow with her into a youth bed and even an adult one....as does the baby-changer appear like one that can grow with baby too! The designers today really know how to craft things that will last and not need to be tossed out so quickly! Nicely done!

Jen said...

Wow! That room looks amazing! Talent runs deep in your family!

Ames said...

Our daughters have decorated their nursery's almost the same. The crib, chair and changing table are in the same place. The walls are even the same colors. Our daughters have good taste!:) ~Ames
P.S. Good to see you again.

Very nice nursery - I am expecting my first grandbaby in June (my youngest daughter and sil are having their first baby!) so nurseries are sorta special to me right now. I'll be working on the one here in the next few weeks and will be sure to post pics on my blog. Thanks for stopping by earlier today and hope you will come back often!

What a sweet nursery, Maria! Thank you for your comment on my blog. I am enjoying getting everything together to do my granddaughter's room. I should have everything by this week {waiting on one delivery} and then I hope to head over there and do a one day transformation. Of course, my guest room looks like chaos right now since I've been putting all the things in there for now, but it is well worth it.

I'll bet you are very excited for your grandbaby's arrival! I know I was and she is a true joy to me!
